Peter,

Google's plan to create the largest on-line library?. This writer should be educated concerning the Internet Archive; we are the largest on-line library, bar no one. Well I guess that unless one is a corporate prostitute, ripping of the world they get no 'Public' notice.

Google will be governing the world shortly, all the world's problems solved, no more war, no more kids dying of starvation, etc.

We can all dream.

BTW, another news item, which was no really relevant to the text forum, Google says recession over, it can start taking over more companies now.
